The large number of students using test accommodations through Student Disability Services during finals week necessitates careful planning for adequate test space, proctors, readers, scribes, and to ensure test security.
Faculty can assist SDS staff by observing the following procedures:
1. You will receive an email request for each exam scheduled by a student.
2. Please deliver exams to 110 Towers Concourse or send via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) a minimum of 24 hours before the test is to be administered. If this is not possible, please call the office (274-1257) and indicate when the exam will be delivered. Due to the number of tests taking place during finals week, most exams are administered in locations outside our office, and we need to have them delivered to the test site well before the exam seating. In the event that you need to deliver the test close to the time of the exam seating, you may be asked to deliver it directly to the exam site.
3. Do not send tests via campus mail as the exam may not arrive in time; also, this is not a secure method of delivery.
4. When e-mailing an exam, please send the exam as an attachment to preserve proper formatting.
5. Please remember to include special instructions (e.g. open book/open notes), blue books, and Scantron sheets with the exams.
6. Whenever possible, please put images, pictures, etc. on a CD or flash drive, ensuring both test security by avoiding use of the internet and an accurate visual image (e.g. color images for art history exams).
7. Completed exams will be delivered to the Dean's Office or, upon your request, will be held in 110 Towers Concourse for you to pick up.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office at 274-1005.
Thank you for your assistance.
